    if you don't want the heavy narcotic high, cut them when you just start to see any ambers on the calyxes.
    is that an auto? pretty plant, but doesn't look like any of the white widow i've grown out

    Looking at the amber, curled pistils with my untrained eye I’d probably have snatched that up already. I just got a jewelry glass to see the trichomes. Back in the day we didn’t know shit about trichomes and went by amber pistils.

    I’ve found that a couple of weeks can be added to what they say. Just buy a jewelry loupe, learn about trichomes, and harvest when they’re right for your personal preference. I like to harvest when I see all or 90% milky trichomes. That’s when the max THC is acquired. If you want couch lock medicine wait until most trichomes are amber.

    K0ijn is right. I’ve always harvested Old School rule: when the trichomes are cloudy amber its harvest time! Old school became “New School” when I got my new dry “bladeless” trimmer. I got it because amber “ripe” trichomes make buds sticky and hard to hand trim wet or in bladed trimmers for wet. These auto-trimmers designed for wet are crazy and gum up and if you’re hand-trimming you lose a lot when they (trichomes) get stuck to your blades and gloves. I cure my buds so they’re moist enough to keep the potency but the sugar leaves are dry. Then with my new TTT’s (I got 4 now) they trim my Buds to perfection in appearance, but most importantly my new Tom’s Tumble Trimmer LEAVES MOST of the trichomes on the Buds where they belong!

    I've been running ilgm ww on and off for 3 years, I like it when there is as much cloudy as possible, no amber (got enough sleep meds)

    I smoke it almost every day at the beach, it's my go-to beach walking weed LOL (that's a thing!) :hump:

    Couple ww pics from this year..
